Gilford Historical Society encouraged by visitors during Old Home Day

GILFORD — Gilford Historical Society members were very pleased to see so many people touring its three buildings during Old Home Day.

"We appreciate the fact that so many people value our historical buildings and want to learn and see what life was like before electricity. We were especially glad to see so many young people interested and asking questions.'' said Kathy Lacroix, society member.

The 1857 Grange (opposite the Village Store) and the 1838 Rowe House (beside the elementary school) will be open on the first Saturday of September and October, from 10 am-2 p.m..

''We especially hope that parents/grandparents will want to bring their children to see what life would have been like for them in the 1800's and early 1900's. I know that when the four classes of second graders from Franklin visited in the spring, they were interested and had many questions, and were surprised by some of the answers. This is a chance for adults to share a learning experience with their young ones. If you would like a "sneak peek" at what our building/exhibits look like, go to gilfordhistoricalsociety.org.'' says Lacroix.
